In 1978, the Seventh-day Adventist Church got to Oshimili (Delta Igbo lands).The message was taken there by late pastor Paul C. Chima .The work started at Akuku-Igbo with few persons who later left the church. In 1981, Late pastor P.C. Chima conducted an evangelistic effort that brought in Mr.& late Mrs. U. G. Otionu, Mr. and Mrs. Ndubuise Onyeawuia, Mr. Okolo, Mrs . Charity Owuka and Anthony Oluwa. Otionu and Anthony were charged with the responsibility of securing the land where the church at Akwukwu Igbo is built. In 1993, Pastor Okei Okonkwo and Elder Nwandei held an evangelistic effort in Issele-Uku that brought to the Church about ten members. This evangelism gave birth to the Church in Issele-Uku. Elder Nwandei bought the Church land at Issele-Uku. Today Oshimili has two branches as companies; Akwukwu and Issele-Uku. Membership stands at 51.
